schedule update

The band is now taking a break every Dec., Jan., and Feb. During the break, we are booking, writing, recording, and even buying new gear. Shows will resume in March. The calendar will be updated in the coming days/weeks as shows are being added for 2016. If there is a particular place you want ONE to play, let us know. Looking forward to another fun year with you!

Acoustic Co. tonight in our hometown…

Chris and Rick (the vox and edge of ONE) will be performing at Canton’s TD’s Tailgate Grill for the first time tonight (February 7th, 2015). Obviously we’ll be playing some of our standards – including one of our new favorites off of Songs of Innocence, “Every Breaking Wave” – but we’re also continuing to add new tunes to the acoustic set. Tonight we debut two new songs, one by Alice in Chains and another by Oasis. Help us begin our year-long celebration of our first decade together by joining us for a few wings and other delights. We’re looking forward to seeing you.

Booking ONE – A Celebration of U2

Booking will begin in the next week or two for ONE – A Celebration of U2. If you have somewhere you would like to see ONE (or Alternavox, Acoustic Co.) play, let us know at “” 2015 promises to be a huge year for us as well as U2 – expecting a new U2 record and plans of a tour. Looking forward to seeing you all soon! -Chris

ONE joins the fight for literacy.

When we first started our tribute to U2 about nine years ago, we knew we wanted to do more than just celebrate U2’s music; we also wanted to celebrate their continuing efforts to call attention to important issues of the day. This is why our show on Thursday, June 19th is such a powerful opportunity for us. It’s one thing to be able to reach people on a global level concerning global issues, which U2 does very well, but with Project READ, we have the opportunity to be a part of a fantastic organization working directly with the people of our home state of Ohio.

As a high school literature teacher, I have had many opportunities to see the powerful impact of great literature, but I have also seen just how important fundamental literacy has become in a world soaked in instantaneous information coming at us from all directions. The U2 song “Numb” is basically about this (watch this clip from the 1993 MTV VMAs for a brilliantly-ironic performance), but as prescient as U2 were back in 1993, literacy has become even more important today. I mean, who could have known at that time just how much Zoo TV would look like youtube?

So join us for the fight for literacy on Thursday, June 19th at Dayton’s beautiful Fraze Pavilion, and please support literacy efforts wherever you are.

“If you don’t know – Acoustic Co.”

ONE’s very own Rick (Edge) & Chris (Bono) will be performing an acoustic duo this year call Acoustic Co. Most of these dates will be at casinos, wineries, and coffee houses in the area. If you are interested in an unplugged approach at the U2 hits and even songs by some additional artists, come check it out. The First show of it’s kind will be on Thursday, Jan. 23rd at the Hard Rock Rocksino @ Northfield Park – Northfield, Ohio.
